    Nintendo have today unveiled some new details about the Wii message board feature.

    The Wii message board will act as a dashboard type interface, giving users the ability to set personal reminders and mesages for other users in the household aswell as send email. The message board will also collect console and game information for each specific user.
    -Tamaki, one of the creators of the Wii Message Board

    Nintendo also went into detail about the Wii Play feature which records how long you spend playing each individual game, to produce interesting statistics.

    It's just really fun for users to be able to see the record of how long they played," said Iwata. "In the future, we could make it possible to plot on a graph how much you've played. Also, with users' cooperation, we could compile data on which game was the most played that year."

    Here's a roundup of the Message board and Wii play features courtesy of Joystiq.

    Message Board

    • Stores user achievement data and shares it will other users of that console
    • Integrates with games to alert players of important events; e.g. "Concert next Saturday in town" (Animal Crossing)
    • Utilizes date sorting and calendar integration
    • When connected to the internet, can be linked to other consoles' Message Boards to exchange notes, data, screenshots, etc. (in other words: simplified email client)
    • Compatible with mobile phones

    Play History

    • Data collection function, which cannot be cleared
    • Compiles total amount of playtime (and possibly other stats) for every game played
    • Doubles as a monitoring system for parents wanting to keep a watchful eye on their kids' gaming habits
    • Will be used by Nintendo (with user consent) to pool data into useful statistical categories; i.e. "most played game of the year"
